After the Supreme Court’s landmark ruling in acknowledging transgenders as the third gender, DU has introduced the “third gender” category in its admission forms for postgraduate courses. However, it is still not clear as to what reservations or benefits, if any, transgenders will receive if they get admitted into DU as a separate category. The University Grants Commission (UGC) is yet to formulate a policy for transgenders and DU is expected to take its cues from the UGC policy. With the lack of availability of proper facilities and DU’s all inclusive sexual harassment policy no longer in effect, the safety of transgenders can be questioned.
